spring, chillis, chips


Posted by Picasa A few days ago they were in bud. Now today's warm sunshine has opened the buds. They are dwarf daffodils. More like wild ones perhaps. They were planted only a couple of years ago.  Never has The Grove looked better in the Spring. (Click to see whole picture).

Some one has dropped a green chili on the pavement and few paces on another one. Some creature has nibbled one of them, leaving only the tattered shred of a pod. But what I wonder eats chili, other  of  course   than homo sapiens?

Outside the Down Town Fish Bar opposite The Compasses, a fire engine comes to a halt and parks by the curb. Two firemen descend and enter the shop. We should have know. There is no one to rescue; no fire to put out. The firemen emerge white packages in their arms. It is time for lunch.

Thanks so much for the daffodils.
Spring is badly needed this year.
